Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Sugar tax has more public support than expected

(University of Göttingen) The increase in diet-related illness has led to a high burden of costs for society. However, German policymakers, in comparison with their international counterparts, have so far been reluctant to make political interventions that support healthy eating. The concern is that interventions, such as imposing taxes, will be unpopular. Researchers at the University of Göttingen have now shown that there is clear support for nutritional policy action in Germany. The results have been published in the scientific journal Nutrients.
